What People are Saying About This

Joan C. Callahan

Christine Overall's 'theoretical autobiography,' shares much of her personal history as a feminist academic, 'come up' from the working class. . . The result is stunning. Her story is relentlessly candid, absolutely engaging and enormously rich; it will resonate with feminists inside and outside the academy. . . This is, then, a book no one should miss.
